  1. Thanks. I found a thread that tells me to look for SVID in my BIOS but apparently I can't find it to save my life even with the search function. That's so weird
  2. This might be something to look at, I'll go search around Google to see what's happening. When you say power draw it's "Package power" right? I just did a BIOS update but nothing much changed, if anything.
  3. Uh I did a BIOS update before but I guess I can try to update it via Internet? I'm not that comfortable doing BIOS updates but I'll try. Yes I stopped when the screws stopped turning Is it something solved by BIOS update?
  4. Oh I guess I was worried for nothing. I guess I might get a new cooler and see if temps improve. Thanks for clarifying!
  5. BIOS shows that CPU fans are running at 2000RPM at 100%, is that normal? First time I noticed the problem was with the stock cooler thermal paste. I just bought a CoolerMaster thermal paste and reapplied, still not much difference.
  6. I realize that this topic has been posted before but none of the threads I've searched for has helped so far, so I'm here asking for some help. I've used Afterburner, HWMonitor and HWiNFO and they all show high temps on CPU, while below 10% utilization from Task Manager. Attached images of HWMonitor and HWiNFO I've reapplied thermal paste on the CPU cooler but temps still hasn't improved much. CPU idle temps around 65~75 Celsius and CPU fan running on 100% speed, 2000RPM I've reloaded the default settings to BIOS but still the same. CPU voltage
  7. Thank you! I restored the BIOS and it all works fine now!
  8. CPU temps on the Afterburner picture shows around 50-ish. I don't think it should be throttling at that temperature. Edit: Used the IPDT and temps seem to be fine.
  9. I have an i5 6500, Gigabyte B250M mobo, 16GB RAM @ 2133Hz, RX 480Noticed the highest my CPU usage goes is 68% from Task Manager.Read a few threads, ran Cinebench and CPUZ to check. Power settings has maximum CPU usage at 100%.For curiosity, also ran Afterburner to check CPU usage, curiously it shows 100% while Task Manager shows 68%.The highest clock speed for i5 6500 is 3.2Ghz and 2.2Ghz is exactly 68% of that. Anyone has any idea how to fix this? Might be something with BIOS but I'm entirely unsure of how to weave in and out of BIOSAlbum image: https://imgur.com/a/cyMBXnP
  10. Thanks all for the wonderful replies! This gives a lot of insight into different opinions. I'll look into the pros and cons of each one. And hopefully I'll be able to post my final build as thanks for all your efforts!
  11. Oh I'm still a student right now so I don't think it needs to be that powerful. And it's probably not the most intensive complex modelling. I'm using a 840M right now on a laptop and they still work on it. I read that modelling takes a decent CPU that's why I listed it.
  12. Hi LTT Forums! I'm planning to build my first PC myself and I'm on a budget right now (Preferably £600~800 or USD750~1000 but the lower the better cos I'm not earning my own money yet and yeah...). I've seen a lot of budget builds on YT but they're not all that well rounded at times. I live in the UK right now so the partpicker list would be in pounds (Sorry) Uses: Gaming + Usual stuff + Engineering student CAD Modelling PC Partpicker CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor (£218.28 @ Aria PC) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM
  13. It does? I'll go back to the store and try out the G502 some more. Thanks for the suggestion!
  14. Hi guys! This is my first time posting here. Sorry if I'm in the wrong section... Since this is the thread for peripherals... My main topic today is a debate between getting the G502 or G402 (after watching the G402 LTT video), or even something that you guys would suggest. Here are my key points of consideration, after visiting a Logitech store to try out these mouse myself. I like the infinite scrolling and sideways scrolling of the G502 (For productivity uses, since I have a mouse that has infinite scrolling atm but not sideways scrolling) but I don't think I like th
